Gardeners' Notes:

I purchased a 6 pack of these beauties in May,2008, and fell in love! Disease-free, prolific bloomer right up until our first killing frost in November. Colors varied on this plant from day to day (creamy yellow, bright yellow, light peach, apricot, bright orange, rusty orange). I attributed this change in colors to temp. & amount of sun, although I really don't know for sure what caused it - I've never experienced this with any other plant. I collected seeds in the fall, and started my own plants for the 2009 season. (No greenhouse, just started them in my sunny kitchen). I put very small (about 3"-4") plants in the ground at the end of May (18 of them). They have all performed exactly the same as those from 2008, and I will continue collecting seeds and planting these forever!! They are especially beautiful when mixed throughout the garden with blues or purples (verbena, ageratum). I only wish I could dig them up before the frost and have their beauty continue through the winter as a house plant. I guess that would be expecting too much from this wonderful plant. Maybe I'll try one plant just for the heck of it.

petite zinnias in delicious apricot shades with exceptional heat and mildew resistance. Superb performers bloom non-stop on 2 foot plants. A lovely canopy of summer color.

I'm not growing them now, but I had planted a couple of these a few years ago and they ended up reseeding all over the place. The new seedlings looked just like the parents, flowers and all.
